Items of the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition are on display in the foyer of the Finke Theatre during the Sacagawea presentation of Dianne Moran and Pat Frank. The collection includes items of clothing, weapons, possibles bags, horns used for several purposes such as powder and medicine.

Telling the story of "Sacagawea and the Corps of Discovery," Moran portrayed the Shoshone woman who traveled as a translator with the Lewis and Clark expedition, while Frank provided vocal and instrumental accompaniment and interludes using the guitar and other more period instruments.
